Even though it starts off with magic-magnetic duo Rihanna and Vybz Kartel, The Heatwave‘s Energy Bashment mix is not about the latest fresh-off-the-plane reggae and soca tunes. The riddims that it mashes remind us of perennial, always-fresh 90′s golden-era Dancehall, just some fun shit to jump up to, even if you don’t know the designated move. It’s perfect for rolling down the windows and testing the mettle of your bass speaker. Lyrically, its on some real dancehall queen type shit—Keida’s “We Ready” is a little crass and definitely blush-worthy, Vybz Kartel and Gaza Slim pack plenty of “long-pipe” mentions in “Like a Jockey.” Heatwave has even thrown in some oldies— Supa Cat, Beenie Man and Miss Dynamite. Wherever you make your dance hall, when the tunes run everybody can act a bad gal.
